In High Ropes Course on October 8, 2014 at 10:42 pm
As a part-time staff member of George Mason University — working at a challenge course called THE EDGE — I’m a part of a team that’s competing in a competition to get outdoors. I can’t think of a more healthful and pleasant way to enjoy the fall season.
Here are a few images taken so far to document my outdoor activities. (Excuse the fact that these are all “selfies.” This is a condition of the contest and there are a lot of college-aged young adults participating along with those of us who may be called “boomers” or who attended the “Un-college”)
Leading a group of students at The EDGE.
Biking along Route 234 (a.k.a. Dumfries Road).
Walking along Route 234.
Taking a night time stroll at GMU’s main campus.
Bagging leaves and vines.
Raking leaves. Now I know why they call this season fall.
Planting bulbs and anticipating a spring bloom.
Brisk walk along Route 234.
Participating at our team debrief at the end of the day at The EDGE.
We “pushed” 150 climbers over our Alpine Tower today. Students are in the bleachers waiting for their buses.
Walking the boundary of my nearest National Park.
